Digital Media Consumption Manifesto
We love movies! And we would love to pay for these movies we love. We are persuaded that a big part of today's piracy would just stop if content delivery was to change a bit.
Let's face it, it's 2011 and we're still expected to walk to a video store in order to rent a movie. Of course we could use iTunes. But what movie lover wants to watch a dubbed movie. It seems so difficult and frustrating to legally obtain a movie.
And that's why people are often tempted to do what's easiest. Torrent, Open Subtitles and Boom, 30 minutes later it's like in the cinema.
Yet we think this could all be so much easier! We believe that content providers are a wee bit lost. They see us as their enemy. But we're not! We love movies! And most of us understand that movies have a cost.
On February 3rd 2011 about 20 people got together for a workshop at the Lift11 Conference. We all had one thing in common: love for movies. We noticed that we all struggle with the current content delivery landscape, find it difficult to legally obtain the movies you want to watch and think that it could all be much easier.
This is why we collaboratively came up with the Digital Media Delivery Manifesto that can be signed on this page.
And who knows, in the end, maybe content providers will understand our needs. And the fact that we are not their enemy. We are just huge fans of movies who would love to pay for their content. If only it weren't so damn difficult.
